Treat Your Sleep Apnea Symptoms to Feel Well Rested

The most common type of this sleep disorder is obstructive sleep apnea. It’s caused by your tongue and other soft tissues in your throat relaxing to the point that your airway is blocked. When this happens, you wake up momentarily – usually without any knowledge of it – and take in a few breaths. Then you drift off to sleep again until the next episode occurs. For sufferers of severe sleep apnea, this cycle can repeat hundreds of times per night!

When you come to our office to treat your sleep apnea, here is what you can expect:

  • We will help you get the right diagnosis of your sleep problems through a physician-reviewed sleep study.
  • Once you have a diagnosis, Dr. Miller will design a treatment plan for you. He’ll work with your general practitioner to ensure that you receive the best, most comprehensive treatment available.
  • Like other sleep apnea sufferers we have treated, you may be able to avoid using a CPAP machine. While effective, many patients have trouble getting used to a CPAP. They quit using it – which is no help at all for your sleep apnea symptoms. Instead, we can create an oral appliance which offers a simple and more comfortable sleep apnea solution.

You may recognize symptoms such as waking up gasping for air, snoring, headaches, daytime fatigue, dry mouth, and moodiness. If any of these look familiar, it’s important you get the help you need. Ask us about your symptoms at your next checkup.

It’s essential you don’t ignore signs of sleep apnea. It increases your risk for health issues such as heart attacks, high blood pressure, diabetes, and strokes. Treating it can help you avoid big health concerns in the future.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that affects tens of millions of Americans. People who have sleep apnea can stop breathing hundreds of times each night. This condition can increase your risk of everything from high blood pressure to heart attacks and being in car accidents. The most common form of this disorder is obstructive sleep apnea, which Dr. Miller can help you treat.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Sleep apnea is harmful because it blocks your oxygen supply while you’re sleeping. This interferes with your sleep and leaves you feeling weak and tired the next day. Sleep apnea has also been linked to serious health concerns like heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression. Treating sleep apnea can improve your quality of life as well as your life expectancy.

How is sleep apnea treated?

If you receive a sleep apnea diagnosis, our practice will take impressions and have a custom-fit sleep apnea appliance made for you to wear while sleeping. It will gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open. It can even reduce snoring. You’ll sleep better, feel better, and improve your overall health.
